This is a solid set of cups and balls. I really like the personal touch with the hand knitted balls. The cups are a good size and are metal of a sturdy thickness, but the picture shows them having the ball indentations in the top (so you can set the ball on top and it won't roll off) but the set (which comes in a pre-packaged nondescript white box with a picture and label reading, "Combo Cups & Balls AL" and sporting a logo for 'Premium Magic') comes with cups with flat tops. It seems like a bit of a cheap-out to me. I was excited about the set when I ordered it, but having it in hand, I am rather disappointed. Can I do the whole steal/load routine with them - sure. But I cannot easily include any top balancing along the way. Nice try, but missed the mark this time. It's a great flat-top economy cup/ball set, if that's what you are looking for. But if you expect to get what is pictured, prepare for disappointment.
